Which reminds me of a Story..... Years ago,
while on Culpepper.. We played a festival in
Oklahoma...(the name of the town escapes
asked the sponsors, How come you call it "Sucker
Days" and he replied, Years ago a Gentleman came
into Town and booked a CIRCUS, he stayed a week
putting up posters and selling Advance tickets.
He sold quite a few as a Circus had not been
there for years.....Then he left..... On the day
of the show there was a Big crowd out at the
Circus lot to watch the SETUP.... they waited
and waited.... but NO Circus... when they
realized they HAD been Taken... they decided to
get Food and Drink and have a Party! Thus
"SUCKER DAYS" was born!
the year we were there also happened to be, the
??th anniversary (again, my memory evades me) of
"SUCKER DAYS" And the Chairman had located the
Gentleman, and called him to say "hey look, alls
forgiven, its are ANNIVERSARY, and we would like
you to come as OUR guest of HONOR for indirectly
starting our Festival" the Gentleman stated
"Sure but I'm a little short on CASH, can you
send ME travel MONEY" the Chairman said, NO
we've been that Route already GOOD DAY......
have a "HUNCH" no one is going to show up this
WEEK to pick up their 6-legged Bovine...
could be WRONG...
have been BEFORE.......The Curator
